Just finished up our stay here and would not recommend this place to anyone. Our first room was infested with BEDBUGS! We were out on the water and requested management to switch all of our belongings to a new room and they did not. They did move our rooms but no reimbursement was offered. Not to mention the rooms are... More

Let's be upfront here. This is not a luxury resort. In fact, when we pulled into the tight parking lot in front of our motel room (we were in unit 24), we were highly skeptical. However, once we unlocked the door we were put at ease. We only stayed one night on a driving tour through the Keys, so we... More

I was very skeptical prior to arriving at this hotel as I have never stayed in Marathon before but after reading all the previous reviews I decided it had to be given a chance and I was pleasantly surprised and extremely happy with the choice. Our room was clean and the staff was very friendly, even if we decided to... More

We stayed in this resort in May this year. I was a bit wary when booking but the price was good so I gave it a go. I am glad I did because our stay was fantastic. The only regret I have is that we only booked two nights. Everything was perfect from the staff who were welcoming pleasant and... More

We go to the Middle Keys 3 to 5 times a year to do long weekend snorkel trips, and we stay the Black Fin every time now. We've stayed at some other motels nearby, and for the money and convenience you can't beat it. It's clean, friendly, has a nice pool, a good boat ramp, a small marina, a peninsula... More

This was an albeit, tiny, but quaint and affordable room in an overpriced area (i.e. anywhere in the Keys). It was pet-friendly, clean, and, honestly, better than expected. y husband and I only stayed for one night, along with my sisters (each had their own room). They also agreed that for the money it was a LOVELY little place. Will... More

My son and I enjoyed our stay at the Blackfin Resort. We stayed for 3 nights in June 2015. The motel is maybe what you would call Old Florida style, but I think it fit the character of the keys well. The people who worked there were friendly and nice, and responded immediately to fix a problem I had with... More

We enjoyed staying here during our trip to the keys. We spent 2 days in the marathon area and black fin is right in the perfect location for all the nearby attractions, state parks and beaches. Affordable, very pet friendly (the pet fee is cheaper here than at most places) and has beautiful grounds to walk around. There's a gorgeous... More
